A list of films waiting in Community Video for being moved to FEATURE FILMS (and, hopefully, NOT to nirvana!):

I hope I did not miss something.

One Problem: MonsterpieceTheaterPresents05 contains the Movie "Battle of the Worlds" which was already in Feature Films but was soon taken down, if my memory doesn´t betray me because of copyright problems.

Glad to see T-Bird Gang here...given the assortment of other late-50's JD fare already here, this Corman-produced number will find good company. Thanks for pointing it out, and thanks to K-otic for the upload.

And look for Coleman Francis (director of Beast of Yucca Flats!) playing the meaty role of "Capt. R. M. Prell"

His last appearance (in anything, I believe) was a bit part as a drunk telling dirty jokes at the party in Russ Meyers' Beyond the Valley of the Dolls. Pretty sad. At least in T-Bird Gang he still looked healthy and sounded good.

He's also in Killers from Space, as the "Guy in Power Plant Who Answers Phone (uncredited)", according to IMDB.

Or, to put it in Coleman Francis-speak: Place a call. Some one answers.

I saw him in was an episode of Sgt Preston of the Yukon, too. He did a lot of stuff, like This Island Earth as a delivery man. Francis and Ray Dennis Steckler were friends ("Coley" was in a few Steckler films, narrating Thrill Killers with that same flat tone he had in Yucca Flats), and Steckler spoke of him fondly in a couple of DVD commentaries. One of the most obscure things Francis did that I came across was an appearance in a "docudrama" called The Last American Hobo.

I've looked around for copies of Red Zone Cuba and The Skydivers, but can't find any. We really should have them at IA.

Not sure if they are PD. The producer (Tony Cardoza) still sells VHS tapes of RZC, and Skydivers was on one of the early MST3K DVD box sets in both "MSTed" and "un-MSTed" form. I bought it only for the un-MSTed version. ;)
